We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that transaction. CEF does not sell, rent, give away or share its e-mail addresses or other information with outside sources.

Should any material changes be made to the ways in which we use personally identifiable information, we will post the changes on our site.

Personally identifiable information is only accessed by CEF personnel on a "need to know" basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Additionally, sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted using SSL and other industry standard measures to provide an additional level of security.
